Bottled mine last Saturday and had a sample last night.

Still needs to carb up a bit but it is coming along very well.

Crisp and refreshing with some slight cloves in the finish. A bit thin on the mouthfeel, but I like that in a brew. I was aming for a 4.2 ABV but finished at 3.7 which makes it go down very easy.

I have run out of wheat yeast and need to get some more. This is one beer I will be making more of.

cheers

OK Trendsetters, thought I'd have another shot at a wheaty in this realm only a dunkleweizen.
Not a true 100%'er as I used weyerman specialties for the colour(but near enough).

Friday 13th Dunkle


96% JW wheat
3% Wey Caramunich II
1% Wey Carafa II

19 IBU

This was my first attempt at a step mash as well and was quite easy just a little longer.
I pulled 2 litres of first runnings and boiled them down to 500 ml for some caramelisation(and it smelt and tasted sensational) and added it back to the main boil 10 min before flame out to cheat on the 90 min boil .
Ready to be pitched this morning with a 3068 slurry.

OK Trendsetters,
I recognise that catch-phrase. So, is this really what Rodney Rude is doing in his retirement? :lol:

Dave, is this to minimise smarty comments from self-appointed off-topic "monitors", such as me? :lol:

Did the mash include a protein rest and a 67 or 68 C step. I find that Dunkelweizens benefit from a moderate body.

The recipe certainly looks good, and I can almost smell and taste the concentrated boil portion. Let us know if you retained the desired flavour when combined/diluted with the main wort.

Best of luck, and pls report your results here.

I have not yet done a 100% wheat beer, as I managed to get a stuck sparge with my Gose, after an overnight acid rest/mash. Only 60% wheat and the beer hasn't cleared yet and it's been bottled for weeks. I had read that this style produces a lot of sediment.

Seth :p
